Here is a "Precious Dew" from the Shizuoka region produced from the Samidori cultivar, often used to make Gyokuro and Matcha.
Grown and processed in the region of Uji in Japan, this "shade-tea" is of great finesse. Shade structures which block up to 70% of the light are placed over the tea plants two weeks before harvest in order to soften the leaves and increase the chlorophyll concentration.
This Sencha green tea is a must in our selection, and also one of our best sellers.
Produced by the Morishita brothers at Isagawa tea farming cooperative in Shizuoka, it sets high the Japanese standards for highly drinkable, daily type green teas.
Lively in taste and showcasing the intense herbal aromas expected from this tea family, this tea also boasts distinct fruity notes as its signature style. A warm, nutty finish rounds up its very complete profile.
Here is a Sencha from our producer of Temomicha from the prefecture of Saitama. From these fine leaves transformed in the style "chumushi" is obtained an opaque liquor, of a deep and luminous green. Its pleasant viscosity is doubled with delicious vegetable, cereal (bran) and fruity notes. A small lot to discover before it's too late!
